Producer Note
Every wine tells a story about the synergy between the soil, sun, grapes and the
country of its origin. The Tikveš Winery has been narrating the Republic of North
Macedonia’s story as a winemaking country since 1885. However, the Republic of
North Macedonia remains one of Europe’s last undiscovered wine countries: it is a
natural paradise of vineyards, mountains, lakes and rivers, with a climate perfectly
suited to producing quality grapes. Located in the Tikveš region, the Tikveš estate
sustainably cultivates indigenous varieties such as Smederevka, Vranec and
Kratoshija. The grapes are vinified in the state-of-the-art cellar equipped with the
latest technology under the watchful eye of illustrious consultant oenologist Philippe
Cambie, resulting in a series of authentic and characterful wines.


Vineyard
Kratoshija (pronounced Krat-oss-SHEE-yah) is a native grape with a long history in the
Republic of North Macedonia which has the same genetic origins as the Italian
Primitivo variety. The Tikveš vineyards are sustainably cultivated, with 80% of the vines
planted on the slopes of hillside plots with east or south easterly orientation. The vines
are double Guyot trained and are planted in well drained clay soils which are rich in
carbonates and naturally encourage high yields. Green harvesting takes place to
reduce the yields and concentrate the flavours in the grapes. The grapes are
manually harvested when they have reached optimal ripeness and maturity and are
transported immediately to the winery.


Winemaking
The grapes were destemmed, crushed and fermented in stainless steel tanks to
retain the fruity aromatics. When fermentation was complete, the young wine was
pressed off its skins in a pneumatic press and underwent malolactic conversion on its
lees, softening the palate. The wine was cold stabilised, filtered and bottled with
minimal sulphur.


Tasting Note
Bright aromas of redcurrants, cherry and red berries lead to a textured and mouthfilling palate with vibrant fruit forward flavours and a deliciously satisfying finish.
